Job Description:

Sr. Mechanical Design Engineer 6K Inc. is a high-tech start-up focused on the sustainable production of advanced materials. The UniMelt-- is our groundbreaking microwave plasma technology platform driving our two divisions: 6K Energy and 6K Additive. Our energy division focuses on the production of sustainable and domestically produced battery materials used in electric vehicles and grid storage while our additive division specializes in sustainably sourced, AM metal powder production and reclamation. Our technology is transforming engineered materials into revolutionary products that advance industries across additive manufacturing, renewable energy, aerospace, consumer electronics, and more. We are actively seeking team members who would bring a strong work ethic and personal integrity to our fast-paced dynamic environment and are looking for an opportunity to challenge the boundaries of traditional manufacturing. We are looking for a Senior Mechanical Engineer who is a jack-of-all-trades type, and who can contribute effectively within a high-performing, team-oriented start-up environment. Description: In this highly visible role, you will have the opportunity to develop the company---s next-generation microwave plasma torch. This technology is at the heart of the system, where the microwave energy couples to highly tuned gas flow to create a plasma discharge. In this capacity, your contributions will have a direct impact on company success through the deployment of designs for cost reduction and performance improvements. This role is highly collaborative and will involve communication with a talented, multi-disciplinary team. Reporting will be to the group leader for core technology development. Although the projects will be varied, some samples are given below (previous experience not required): Development of diagnostic imaging system to characterize plasma torch performance; Design and build of an optical measurements fixture to replace the current physical method; Many opportunities for design, source, build, and test of key hardware subsystems; Establishment of a fluid-flow visualization system using streamline tracers. This opportunity offers exposure to cutting-edge technology that cuts across many disciplines (fluid flow, heat transfer, RF design, plasma physics, materials selection, mechanical design, and multi-physics modeling). There is also ample room for an increase in responsibility and job scope given Amastan---s current high-growth phase. Qualifications: BSME or MSME (preferred) A first-principles thinker, with a firm understanding of mechanical engineering basics Five (5) years of experience with a proven track record of tackling complex, multi-disciplinary problems including those without prior knowledge; Fluency with SolidWorks, scripting (Matlab or similar), data acquisition systems (preferred); Solid mechanical designer who enjoys the full ---stack--- of development: idea generation, feasibility, detailed design, hands-on build & test; An individual who appreciates and is disciplined in following the scientific method (e.g. letting the data speak, designing the correct experiments, demonstrating repeatability, etc.); Self-directed learner who can own a project and drive to solution with limited outside direction; Possesses a ---do-what-it-takes--- attitude which might require going above and below nominal scope.
